Move txt lines

9 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Ok so what I would like to know how to do is

Move lines around in a .txt file or read from the txt and create a new .txt

I have a txt file that has about 200 lines looks like this

(line 1) 4642365 53765 8757 963794

(line 2) 8577478 85689 5855 585848

(line 3) 5856954 58477 3534 958468

(line 4) 6947847 58465 6777 756777

(line 5) 7476676 58457 6856 575576

(line 6) 5855764 57466 4746 584784

(line 7) 5635544 58647 5856 674676

(line 8) 5846746 58568 4747 574747

(line 9) 6747476 47474 5847 675856

(line 10) 5857568 58465 5847 575677

(line 11) 5746746 68457 6856 584755

(line 12) 4847558 47474 5758 584858

How would I move line 7 to line 2

Then line 2 to line 3 then line 8 to line 4. Do that for all the lines

Would it be easier to make a new txt out of it?

hot202,

Read the file into an array with.......wait for it....._FileReadToArray. :)

Then manipulate the array as you wish - if you have losts of changes to make, you might well find it easier to create a new array and copy the original elements into their new places.

Finally rewrite the array to a file with.....you guessed it....._FileWriteFromArray. But be careful of the [0] element. ;)

It might also be interesting to check out _ArraySwap()

this seems to work. Is it the right way to do it?

Im not sure about the For and the $NewLine is there a better way to do that?

#include <array.au3>
#Include <File.au3>
Dim $FileList
_FileReadToArray(@ScriptDir & "\PG5.txt",$FileList)

$Newline = 0
For $i = 47 To $FileList[0]
    $Newline = $Newline +2
    _ArrayInsert($FileList, $Newline, $FileList[$i])
    _ArrayDelete($FileList, $i + 1)
Next

_FileWriteFromArray(@ScriptDir & "\Test.txt", $FileList, 1)
Switch @Error
    Case 1
        MsgBox(1,"ERROR", "Error opening specified file")
    Case 2
        MsgBox(1,"ERROR", "Input is not an Array")
    Case 3
        MsgBox(1,"ERROR", "Error writing to file")
    case Else
        MsgBox(1,"DONE", "File Created")
EndSwitch

hot202,

If it gets you what you want then the answer can only be "Yes!". ;)

is there a better way to do that?

As I am unsure exactly what you are trying to do, that is very difficult to say. But see answer 1 above! :)
